What is an RYA Yachtmaster™?
An RYA Yachtmaster™ needs a wealth of knowledge, not only to cope with plain sailing or motor cruising but also to be able to cope in demanding situations.
RYA qualifications, in particular the RYA Yachtmaster™ Offshore and Yachtmaster™ Ocean Certificates of Competence, are recognised and respected around the world. Qualification as a RYA Yachtmaster™ is the ultimate aim of many skippers, both professional and recreational.
The RYA has a long, distinguished history in professional and recreational boating, with more than a century of experience and knowledge. We work tirelessly at local, national and international level to ensure that your RYA qualifications are accepted and respected as the pinnacle of yacht training.
